Hussein joined IID in July 2019 from Coventry University having completed a BSc Hons in Architecture and a work placement in Seville where he worked on an expansion proposal for an elementary school. His project work at university encompassed leading a team of students (acting as BIM Manager) in redesigning an existing university building. He also participated in a collaboration between Coventry City Council and the Cyrenians Homeless Charity to create a welcoming space for previously homeless people. This secured a Design of the Year Award and RIBA Excellence in Education Award and was exhibited at the New Designers 2018 Graduate Show.
Outside the office, Hussein enjoys travelling, football and the occasional hike.
